Chapter Twenty Three: Alternating Current Circuits
The RLC Circuit
From Andrea Mameli, Gavino Paddeu, Paolo Anedda, Marco Pescosolido and Enrico Stara of the Centre for Advanced Studies, Research and Development in Sardinia, Italy. Mirrored at Mississippi State.
This site displays an RLC (tank) circuit, and allows the viewer to interactively manipulate the values of Resistance, Inductance and Capacitance. An oscilloscope trace of the current and voltage output from an input sine wave can be seen, as well as a current vs. frequency plot showing how the resonance is affected.
PBS and the American Physical Society
Historical / tutorial online exhibit accompanying the PBS program Transistorized! co-produced with the American Institute of Physics. Includes sections on the p-n junction and ICs.
